The Internet is abuzz with rumored  iPhone 5S release dates, with some techies reporting that Apple's newest smartphone could be available as soon as next month.

For months, Apple fans have been clamoring for the iPhone 5S, which is said to feature a fingerprint scanner, retina display, and higher-quality camera. Now there's a clearer picture of what the release timeline might look like.

Insiders claim Apple will unveil the new model Sept. 10 and start sales in Japan Sept. 20, according to CNET.com.

Meanwhile, Chinese news outlets say the phone won't make its debut until mid-to-end November.

The phone was previously reported to be set for release in August, but Apple execs have been tight-lipped.

Whether the iPhone 5S comes out in September or November, sources say its new functions won't disappoint.

"It's intuitive, it's secure, and it makes customers feel like secret agents. Apple knew fingerprint sensing technology would be a hit a long time ago, so the company invested millions of dollars to start implementing this technology as soon as possible," Dave Smith at International Business Times wrote. "[The] technology is so smart, it can differentiate your fingers so as to associate different functions with those fingers. For example, you can use different fingers to play music, or ask for directions, or call a particular contact."

There is also talk of another, low-cost iPhone model, which some say will be released at the same time as the 5S.

The lower-end version, an alternative to Apple's existing smartphone, would resemble the standard model but with a different, less expensive body. The new iPhone could have a plastic shell instead of the aluminum body it has now. Many other parts could remain the same or be recycled from older iPhone models.
